Journalist James McNicholas has hinted that Arsenal may look to profit from the transfer of a talented 21-year-old player this summer.

The potential transfer of promising striker Mika Biereth, amid interest from several clubs, will be one of the decisions Edu will have to address when the season ends.

Biereth, who has yet to make his debut for the Arsenal first team, has garnered attention with his impressive performances this season. Initially loaned out to Motherwell, the Danish striker scored six goals and provided five assists in 16 games before moving to Sturm Graz in January.

During his time in Austria, Biereth has been in sensational form, netting eight goals in just 11 appearances, including four goals in his last four matches in the Austrian Bundesliga.

Despite Arsenal’s current position at the top of the Premier League table, there are lingering concerns about the depth and quality of the striker position within the squad. McNicholas believes that Biereth’s future at the club may be uncertain, suggesting that the Gunners could choose to cash in on the 21-year-old talent in the upcoming transfer window.

While speaking on Arsecast Extra, McNicholas highlighted the challenging environment for young players at Arsenal, where the standards have significantly risen in recent years. While talented prospects like Bukayo Saka have managed to break into the first team, others, such as Miguel Azeez and Marcelo Flores, have been forced to seek opportunities elsewhere.

“When we signed him from Fulham, I think he was the top goalscorer in the division at the time at that level. He scored an absurd amount of goals for them,” McNicholas said .

“He’s a really good, solid centre forward player. He’s 21 now. With these talents, a lot of the time, you feel if their first-team breakthrough is going to happen, especially in the attacking part of the pitch, it tends to be a bit earlier than that. It tends to be 18, 19, 20 we do see these players in the Arsenal first-team.

“I don’t think he’ll come back. I think he’ll be sold.

“That’s my gut feeling [that the time is right to sell].”

The departure of Folarin Balogun and uncertainty surrounding Charlie Patino’s future further illustrate the competitive landscape at the club.

With expectations mounting for another busy summer transfer window, McNicholas’s assessment underscores the tough decisions Arsenal may face as they continue to refine their squad for future success.
